About Me

My photo
I have spent a great deal of my life battling illness. I suffered from Crohn's Disease and eventually had abdominal surgery, thwarting the Crohn's and budding cancer cells. Since my surgery in 1995 I have been relatively free from Crohns', although I had several subsequent surgeries related to my ileostomy..When my disease was in remission, I don't think my husband realized how bad it could get, but he has stood by me. I also have suffered from various autoimmune disorders and am diagnosed with Stage IV Kidney Disease. Fortunately, I am maintaining and do not need dialysis at this point. We adopted our son and later found out he had cerebral palsy, so he became my career. Dan has had two surgeries and tons of therapy and is able to walk because of it. He is a college graduate and is employed as an Information Specialist. We are very proud of his accomplishements. I am now part of the retired generation and still getting used to the idea. I do enjoy crafting, traveling and being with family and friends. I am active in my church and feel that the hardships we endure are there to build our faith. I like to live life in the "now" as we never know how much time is left.

So, Is Christmas Over?

So, Christmas is over?
It seems like there was such a month of scurrying to get cards done, presents bought and wrapped, and all the hub bub.  Now that is behind us.
Christmas Eve I failed to take many pictures.

Christmas Day in our PJ's

You know you are getting old when you like work pants!


                                                            At my best friend's house!

My niece and her daughter, Godson and his brother and Linda.

Doing what guys do best.
A nice picture of my great niece and myself

My sister's kids!  (they're old!)
Karson is a sweetie and is being taken care of by his Grandma

Missed the sunset!

Also missed seeing my little guy, great great nephew, Tommy!

Life went back to normal yesterday.  I did laundry; Jim golfed.  Wait!  That's not normal for December 26th!  It was 40°!  What's with that?  No white Christmas this year although it is on it's way (so they say).

We plan on going to the Green Bay Botanical Garden of Lights tonight.  I hope I get some good pictures.  I have never seen it before.

What fun! My extended to be gone since my parent's death. I enjoy reading about other families at Christmas. I'm praying that my children will have lots and their children will have lots and we'll enjoy a big family one day too.
